If the group is actually ready to hire an architect or purchase land, it makes sense. But that may be 2 years down the road from the first burning souls finding each other. At that point $10K is a lot of money to invest in a dream that will require another 30-40 people to sign on. Part of my immediate reaction is that my daughter is planning to design some websites to see if she enjoys doing it. She mentioned this to a friend who is a lawyer and received complicated advice to incorporate and get liability insurance before announcing her services. She would need to invest money before having any possibility of earning any money and it would be an investment in a corporation that might never develop. If she is designing non-commercial websites for friends of friends, neither of us could figure out why that would be necessary. Needing to be incorporated is different from believing that it is good business practice or even personal protection. This article on Nolo.com explains what kinds of business practices you have to maintain to prove you really are functioning as a corporation — keep professional records and bookkeeping, clear separation of personal from organizational activities, etc. In the case of wrong doing by one member of the corporation, among other things, voids their protection from risk. https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/corporation-basics-29867.html Sharon ——— Sharon Villines, Editor & Publisher Affordable Housing means 30% of household income Cohousing means self-developed, self-governed, self-managed http://affordablecohousing.com To subscribe to the discussion list send a blank message to: affordablecohousing+subscribe [at] groups.io
